Friday I began a doctor supervised diet plan. Now before you all freak out and start screaming about how I don't need to lose weight just listen. I may be within the 'normal' limits for height to weight, but I'm above 'normal' in fat percentage. I've always said that I'm a fat skinny girl and truth be told, well over 30% of my body weight is fat.
Since beginning karate classes, the fact that I'm out of shape and lack any muscle tone is holding me back. If I can lower my body fat and reset my metabolism it will jump start my body into building and toning muscle.
This diet consists of drops taken three times a day (don't worry they aren't HGC) that tell my body I have too much fat stored and to burn it, along with a reduced fat and calorie food plan it has already proven itself.
The first two days on the drops were the 'gluttony' days. I could eat anything and everything I wanted. These days made me hate food. I felt so bad, lethargic and sick. Yesterday was the first calorie restricted day and I have to say it wasn't that bad. I got a glycemic shake made with almond milk for breakfast along with coffee, two pieces of fruit and 6 nut thin crackers for snacks, a total of four cups of veggies and two 4 ounce servings of lean meat for lunch and dinner. It felt like I was always eating. For me, that is great because the word diet immediately conjures withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
I've already lost a pound and look forward to losing the next 9 to 14. My goal is to be back to my per-pregnancy size and weight. Considering Gryffin is now 6 and a half years old I think this goal is long overdue.
